    "Hey, I've got an idea! Let's lay down and pretend we've dropped dead in this crazy heat and make Mom come screaming out of the house in a panic!"

    "Gee Mom, sorry we scared you so much that you ran out without any shoes on and stepped on a dead mouse that the cat dropped off!"

    About once every couple of weeks my wife will look out the window and think the chickens are dead so I go out and they all jump up and run to the door. They have the dead chicken pose down pat.

    Ah yes...the dead chicken pose. Been there....done that....more times than I care to count. LOL I have one Delaware hen that freaks me out constantly...she will walk past you out into the sunshine somewhere and just throw herself down on her side and lie there. I cannot tell you how many times of seeing this it took for me to ignore her. I thought "Holy Crap...she had a heart attack!" LOL


    Here she is in one of her less traumatic toss downs

    Even the roo ignored her finally

    I love it when there are two chickens using the same depression they've dug for their dust baths, and one has her neck laying over the body of the other one, and they've tired themselves out. So it looks like a double homicide, just ready to be buried.

    Here's a photo of something similar, but without the burial ground already dug up.

    HAHAHA Now I wish I'd have taken my camera out that day I just "knew" one or two of my chicks were dead! One didn't move until I was right up on it. When it jumped up I nearly sh** myself.

    I was like: [​IMG]
